Dixie Gammage Hall

Dixie Gammage Hall is the only building on the ASU campus with a doorbell. Thus, it's fitting that this former dormitory should be named after a woman who, by all accounts, was just as distinctive. Dixie Dees Gammage was married to her former pupil, Grady Gammage, ASU's ninth president, in 1913 and died in 1948. She was a woman with a vision and played an active role in the development of ASU. Dixie was also known for her friendly, caring demeanor. That is why students voted to name the hall in her honor at its opening in 1941.

Today, Dixie Gammage Hall is home to the dean's office, departmental offices and other services for the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. The School of Theatre and Film’s main office and faculty are on the second floor. Many offices still have sinks and mirrors, reminders that the building was once a residence hall.
